Endpoint:
melting point/freezing point
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2007
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with national standard methods with acceptable restrictions
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
reference to other study
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
reference to same study
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:

Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
other: KDK 604 Internal Method
Version / remarks:
internal method of Koppers Denmark
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
method to determine freezing temperature
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Name of test material (as cited in study report): Composite Sample 7 Anthracene Oils (B(a)P < 50 ppm)
Key result
Melting / freezing pt.:
92 °C
Atm. press.:
ca. 1 013 hPa
Decomposition:
no
Sublimation:
no
Conclusions:
The CCSG composite sample 07 of anthracene oil (anthracene oil ≤ 50 ppm BaP, AOL) was demonstrated to have a melting range of 92 °C at atmospheric pressure. But it is also known, that other samples/batches of anthracene oil (AOL) may have a lower melting range due to slight differences in composition.
